: but this is his chance to make up for what was widely perceived as a loss by president obama to mitt romney in last week's debate. >> the vice president is very much looking forward to the debate tonight because there are really clear distinctions between the president and mitt romney even if governor romney is trying to fuzzy up those distinctions in the final weeks of the campaign. >> reporter: biden has done this before debating sarah palin in 2008. it's ryan's biggest ever debate stage. he's talking of studying 40 pounds of paperwork as republicans try to build up biden's debate skills. >> i've known paul for a long, long time. he's always hit the ball out of park, but let me tell you something. this is his first time. joe biden has been doing this since the 1800ism. >> reporter: six new polls show the race tightened after the first presidential debate especially in battleground state of virginia, florida, ohio, wisconsin and colorado. it puts more pressure on candidates tonight. however -- >> if either of these candidates make it about them, i think they're making a mistake. this is
by congressman darrell issa, one of the obama administration's toughest critics. the last week before the vice presidential debate. >>> plus capital control, the future of the senate could come down to just a handful of races, but, boy, are they different from state to state. today an exclusive, but the two guys driving their party's paths to power. good morning from washington, it's wednesday, october 1010/10/2012. >> last night senior state department officials gave their fullest account yet on the athat killed ambassador chris stevens. the most important take away, there were no protests in front of the consulate before the attacks ever. directly contradicting the story given by susan rice three weeks ago. here's the timeline as we know it from the state department. at 8:30 p.m. local, the streets are calm as ambassador stevens says good night to a viz siing turkish diplomat. answer agent sees a large number of men flowing into the compound and immediately puts out on alarm. a security act hustles the ambassador and others to a bunker inside the residence. the attackers then spray diesel ne
. it is described this way. president barack obama what is the vice presidential debate aboard air force one with staff on route home from florida. the next telephone call is tony, who is watching us in florida. a democrat. caller: first of all, thank you. pi like to say -- i would like to say romney is will using something i call deceptive intelligence. he seems he is coached. he tells have troops, -- half truths, and it does not have a budget. foreign policy. if ryan and anybody is in the office, cable separate america -- they will separate america like bush did from the world. we have the best people in the office right now for foreign policy. when we went in and we raise billions of dollars. i am a soldier. i am a veteran. we spent billions of dollars on a war. we had more countries in which fit, they would put some of the bill. some of the people talking about attitude when it comes to biden, they need to stop boring about his attitude. they better start listening to what is being said. if attitude is what you are voting on right now -- because he will not allow his opponent to get more
and with taxpayer funding. taxpayer funding in obama care, with foreign aid. the vice president himself went to china and said that he sympathized or wouldn't second guess their one-child policy of forced abortions and sterilization. that, to me, is pretty extreme. >> vice president biden? >> my religion defines who i am. and i've been a practicing catholic my whole life. and it has particularly informed my social doctrine. catholic social doctrine talks about taking care of those who can't take care of themselves. people who need help. with regard to -- we regard to abortion, i accept my church's position on abortion as, what we call, a defite doctrine. i accept that in my personal life. but i refuse to impose it on equally devout christians, muslims, jews. i just refuse to impose that on others, unlike my friend here, the congressman. i do not believe that we have a right to tell other people that, women, they can't control their body. that's a decision between them and their doctor, in my view, and the supreme court, i'm not going to interfere with that. with regard to the assault on the
obama and vice president biden. we have the greatest surrogate team, and they're on the ground in those places where there are real people with real issues and real problems, and they're talking about the things that the president talks about, jobs and the economy, health care, education, energy, and tax reform. those are the president's themes. he's never walked away from any of those issues, and it's easier, i think quite frankly for mitt romney to have multiple positions on the same issue because he has no plans. he has no ideas. he has no proposals. he's not ready for prime time. >> okay. we've got a month to go. please spread the word among the surrogates you mentioned we are welcoming them here on "hardball," not to be afraid of me. i can be dealt with. i'm not the worst guy in the world. i will hit them on the points but they'll have a welcome way gone here if they want to come on and make the points. you're very good at it. howard, jack welch was here friday, he did all right. >> i would say it doesn't feel -- i get what the mayor is saying but it doesn't quite feel wlik the cho
-debate mome ?um can vice-president biden make up for president obama's debate disaster? today, congressman ryan speaking about the kentucky showdown. >> joe biden's been on this stage before. it's my first time. but what he can't run from is president obama's indefensible record. >> greta: dick morris, author of the book, here come the black helicopters, joins us. nice to see you. >> good to be here. >> greta: tomorrow night, less than 24 hours away. tell me your thoughts on the debate? >> well, it comessa a very important time in the election. romney not only won they and bait last week, but his bounce has bounced, in the past 2 or 3 days, there is evidence that he is actually moved up in the polls, even more than he did in the immediate aftermath of the debate. i just saw a poll that was taken in pennsylvania, by a polling firm i trust, john mclaughlin that shows that romney is defeating obama in pennsylvania by 49-forty46. smith's running very close to casey for the senate. ryan needs to keep that momentum up approximate this election could be over. i think the big thing is the contrast
ryan and the vice president. i mean between biden and obama. because biden last night was everything that the democratic base wanted barack obama to be in his first presidential debate. the answer to your question really is, did he push the envelope too much? and i would say he did not push the envelope too much. i've been taking phone calls for the last two hours from a lot of folks who were in the gop base and they think that he did. i find it interesting that they're not saying anything about his substance. >> all right. ann, let me bring you in. you're far too beautiful for michael toll ever pull off anything close to you. let me bring you in on this. it's the truth. i want to talk about the medicare. we had high anticipation of whether or not the 47% comment would come up. it did in fact. what the showdown over medicare would look like between these two men. let me play one of the exchanges, ann. >> what we're saying is, no changes for anybody 55 -- >> what mitt romney is proposing -- >> the kinds changes we're talking about for younger people like myself is don't increase the b
has to be very much on their toes. what i mean by na is president obama and vice president biden, for watching mitt romney and paul reasyan do as they've done throughout this campaign, which is walk away from what they talked about days earlier. we got a great example yesterday. mitt romney goes to "the des moines register" board saying there's nothing in his agenda to restrict a woman's right to choose, which we know after having said in debates he's happy to sign a legislation that ended all abortions. we understand there's a mitt romney you see pop up in public, particularly right now, and there's a mitt romney that believes a series of things that directly contradict what he says currently in public. it's a question for people watching that transformation in front of their eyes. it's hard to trust somebody doing that, and i think it's their right to question whether or not mitt romney is just telling you everything you want to hear right now. his positions are all the same. >> mr. gibbs, it's donny deutsch. >> hey, donny. >> was there a strategic decision before the last deba
. >> reporter: there's two more debates schedule. later this week is the vice presidential debate. now the obama camp is dismissing the romney speech saying it's a third or fourth time to explain his intentions. >> there are two presidential debates left in campaign 2012. but on thursday the vice presidential candidates go head-to-head. usually there's little attention paid to the debate between vp candidates but as bill plante reports this year is different. roll it's biden versus ryan. age versus youth. a great society liberal. >> we're going to ask the wealthy to pay more. >> reporter: versus the conservative. >> wouldn't it be nice have a job creator in the white house. >> reporter: biden became a u.s. senator when ryan turned 3. and ran for president twice. he's been on many debate stages before. >> nothing like standing up before 70 million people. >> reporter: biden is a nonstop talking prone to putting his foot in his mouth. >> vice president biden just today said the middle class over the last four years has been quote buried. we agree. >> reporter: on "face the nation" today there was
that disappeared instantaneously on that stage. i have no doubt, though, that president obama and vice president biden understand now that we're dealing with a guy that looks a lot like mndz romney and sounds like mitt romney, but we have mitt romney who believes that we ought to cut taxes on the wealthy as a way to prop up and drive economic growth, and that's his single economic theory, and we've got a guy who believes that we should be cutting teachers, not hiring more of them to invest in growth. >> robert, it's willie. it's good to see you this morning. >> hey, willie. >> i hope you can promise the american people and obama supporters that gene chizik won't be involved in the debate prep for the next debate. >> did joe put you up to that? >> that was all me, robert. >> please call joe scarborough and tell him to quit going negative. >> robert, i'm right here. >> we have a big game against vandy coming up, willie. >> the chizik era speaks for itself, willie geist. >> i think we have the same number of national championships as we do, don't you? >> oh, boy. >> we have one more. >> don't open

editor, dan, and jason riley. >> he did energize the base. after last week's debate performance by obama, democrats were concerned. they were worried. i think they were less so after this vice presidential debate, and i think that was joe biden's primary concern, energizing the party again. >> how did he specifically do that. >> he mention add lot of things that people wanted or democrats had wanted. the president mentioned last week mentioned the 47% remark and auto bailout, and that's what they wanted to hear and he served up a lot of red meat last night. >> how about paul ryan hold up? >> his job was to go in there, meet all these accusations, and everyone knew what was coming. this was going to be joe biden just lambasting him right and left. so his job was to go out there, meet this for the obama campaign strategy, refute it, call them out on it, and generally not put in any big errors that would in any way dominate the discussion in the days after. and to that extent he did do that. >> one of the features of this debate was the biden mannerisms and his behavior. biden-interruptous
this ran issue. we agreed with hed with the obama administration with regard to iraq. the vice president was put in charge of those negotiations by president obama, and he failed to get the agreement. ween don't have [ inaudible ] agreement because they failed to get one. that's what we are talking about. and when it comes to our veterans we owe them a great deal of gratitude for what they have done for us. including your son, bo. >> biden: thank you. >> ryan: but we want to make sure we don't lose the things we fought so hard to get. we agree with the 2014 transition but we also want to make sure we are not projecting weakness abroad. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself but unfortunately it's indicative of a broader problem, and that's the unravelling of the obama foreign policy which is making the world more chaotic and us less safe. >> governor romney talked about the weakness -- talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that really appropriate right in the middle of the crisis? >> ryan: on that same bay the obama administrat
rebuked the vice president noting that the so-called accommodation, the obama administration promised for catholic hospitals, universities, and other religious charities isn't an accommodation at all. they will all still serve as a vehicle for contraception, abore that face drugs and sterilizations because their health insurance premiums still will cover those services. now, ryan himself had some difficulty on the foreign policy questions and allowed, i think, the moderator to cut him off too easily. without a doubt, joe biden's demeanor and his mendacity made him both less likeable and less credible. and that's the memo. now on to the top story reaction, joining us from new york is chris hahn. is he a democratic strategist and fox news contributor and with us here in washington, simon rosenberg, the president of mdm a center left think tank. all right, simon, let's start with you. gergen, come pro-call and others -- tom brokaw and others joe biden looked a little silly the man was almost 70 years old acting like an eighth grader at the school yard trying to taunt the kid maybe not in

[ laughter ] >> plus, former house speaker newt gingrich with his take on the vice presidential showdown and what he expects from obama versus romney round two. ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. [ applause ] >> mike: thank you. thank you very much. and welcome to it huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. just days after the uprising at the egyptian embassy and terrorist attack in benghazi in which four americans including an ambassador were murdered, i looked you in the eye and said your government lied to you. the reaction from the left was swift and brutal. accusing me of playing loose with the facts and of politicizing a a tragedy. i said then and i continue to say our government has lied to us and has engaged in a systematic and deliberate coverup. while i do have friends in the intelligence community and military it wasn't those relationships that gave that thought to me. that just confirmed what was obvious to everyone. well, everyone except the obama administration which continued to embare ras itself by trotting out people to maybe the ridiculou
attention than vice presidential debates usually get. the obama campaign is looking to biden to stop the momentum mitt romney has enjoyed since the debate in denver, which governor romney was widely perceived to have won. ryan's job is to keep romney's momentum rolling. today's national gallup poll of likely voters shows governor romney with a slender lead of one point over the president. of course, that's within the margin of error so it's essentially a tie. tonight's debate isality centre college in danville, kentucky. nancy cordes and jan crawford are there. first we'll go to nancy, covering the vice president's campaign. nancy. >> reporter: scorkt the vice president arrived here in kentucky today after self days of intense preparation in his home state of delaware and several people there with him told us the president's weak performance in his own debate didn't so much change the strategy as raise the stakes and thails the vice president is very well aware he needs to have a better night than the president did. you recall when the president was preparing for his own debate, he c

obama's ting 55% comparedo 44% unfavorable. >> the vice presidential candidates square off -- >> thursday. you can watch it here starting at 6:00. >>> in napa county anybody living here the fairgrounds can expect to hear a big boom in less than half an hour. the napa valley bomb squad plans to blow up a highly volatile case of ether discovered during a cleanup. katie marzullo joins us from calistoga, a safe distance away >> reporter: this is as close as they will let us get. if you look over my shoulder, you can see crews are building a butcher out of sandbags and bomb detecting robot in the mix. authorities have been out here for hours, fire department, bomb squad, police, sheriff. they have to detonateedical ether they found a case, 96 canisters, quarter pound, found in a storm shed with other medical supplies. they believe they were part of a disaster supplies it can for a 200-bed hospital and that had been stored here for decades. the crate with the ether in it was marked 1957. >> because of the age of them, most of it was trashed, junk. in that process, there was a cas
the whole debate, if perhaps the vice president, just like president obama last week was not aware the fact it was a split screen and people were watching for a reaction shot from him. and so when he was listening and not interrupting, he was oftentimes smiling or shaking his head or making a face. for some people, that might be a turn off, but i have to tell you, given the age difference and experience difference and the life experience difference, beyond that political experience between these two people, i think the body language reenforced the verbal message we were getting. this is a young junior account executive debating the ceo of the company. biden came across as credible. i don't think he came across as rude. he knew more of subjects being asked of him than his opponent. >> that was clear when he talked about foreign policy. we want to talk about troops in afghanistan. >> you would rather americans -- >> we are already sending americans to do the job, but fewer of them. >> that's right, we are sending in more afghans to do the job. >> you said this was a really telling moment
here on a mission. congressman ryan to criticize the obama administration's failures and republican solutions while vice president biden was defending the presidential record and also complaining about the republican plan for the nation. >> i will be very specific -- >> reporter: vice president joe biden wasted no time challenging congressman paul ryan's take on foreign policy. >> with all due respect that's a bunch of malarky. not a single thing you said is accurate. >> reporter: the vice president and ryan clashed over the economy. taxes. and medicare. with the democrat often on the attack. >> they are holding hostage the middle class tax cut. about time they take some responsibility. >> reporter: but ryan fired back. he slammed the obama administration's economic record. >> this is not what a real recovery looks like. we need real reforms for a eal recovery and that's what mitt romney and i are proposing. >> reporter: after several heated exchanges ryan said romney's performance last week is motivating the vice president. >> i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for los
words in the english language. >> call it a war of words. the obama and romney campaigns are squabbling over vice president joe biden's use of the word we in thursday night's debate. he was responding to charges that the state department turned down requests for more security in libya before last month's terror attack that killed three other americans. >> we weren't told that one wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security. >> republican presidential nominee, mitt romney, says biden contradicted sworn testimony from state department officials. they said requests for increased security in libya were denied. >> american citizens have a right to know just what's going on and we're going to find out and this is a time for us to make sure we do find out. >> but the white house says the we, vice president biden was referring to, is not the entire administration. >> the vice president was speaking about himself and the president and the white house. he was not referring to the administration. >> spokesman jay says the vice president wouldn't have known about security
: president obama was criticize ford being too pass if antietam laif -- passive in last week's debate. vice president biden seemed determined to not make the same mistake. >> shouldn't be surprising for a guy who says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives. they pay more respective tax than governor romney pays in his federal income tax. >> reporter: ryan said the administration failed the middle class. >> we're going in the wrong direction. look where we are. the economy is barely limping along. >> reporter: side by side at the same table, biden and ryan were not shy about directly engaging each other. sometimes with harsh attacks. sometimes with humor. >> i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the word don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> but i always say what i mean. >> reporr: with the polls tightening, the president needs to fire up his democratic base, while romney need to convert 2008 obama voters. rob, paula, last night here in kentucky, both of them got a lot of help from their running mates. >> karen, can we
't. president obama spoke with vice president biden after the debate and thought biden was quote, terrific, and he could not be prouder of him. last night the president chided mitt romney for calling himself severely conservative and now trying to reinvent himself as a moderate. >>> during a campaign swing through north carolina, mitt romney again, going after the obama administration's handling of the terrorist attack in libya. romney accusing the president of failing to quote, grasp the seriousness of the incident. today romney will hit the trail again joining running mate paul ryan at a rally in lancaster, ohio. >>> it is all about ohio. as we head into the homestretch for the election some pennsylvania voters are getting mixed signals about what is required at the polls come election day. some residents received a newsletter stating they need to show a photo id in order to cast their ballot. it was sent out after last week's court ruling that put the voter id law on hold. >> i just thought it was wrong that we would get that on the 9th of october, when the decision was made on october
and taxes and borrowing and they are buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> is the republican vice-presidential nominee right? hello, i am cheryl casone and welcome to cashin! we have wayne and johnathon and tracey and along with lloyd weber. you heard him the middle class getting buried. you agree with that? >> there are so many little taxes that we never paid before. middle class gets slammed by the federal tobacco tax and tax on manufactured drug companies. and any corporate taxes that increased came down to the prucks we purchase and laugh about the tanning tax, but that comes out of the wallets of the middle class . jersey maybe more so. it is money i don't have in the end of the day. >> all right, johnathon, what do you make of this? the last four years middle class and according to mr. biden, that -- >> i reject the notion that it is government's role to help the middle class or any class. joe biden came in years ago with middle class tax force and by his own admission terribly ineffective and in my opinion offensive. but tracey said taxes are a fo
at one point in time, from medicare given to obama care, does biden, vice president biden have to really like put the hold up, wait a minute, and go in on congressman ryan? >> look, he has it to obviously put up something of a rebuttal and satisfy that itch among democrats for a more aggressive pushback, and he's comfortable with that. that's the kind of thing vice president biden has done over the years. he's an engaged debater and enjoys the give-and-take. it doesn't come across as too mean, but he has a habit of, loquaci loquacious and has many gaffes. they're trying to take advantage of his long experiment at the head of national government. >> thank you very much. greatly appreciate you coming on to talk with us. pretty exciting week again. we're still waiting to see if the race has nvt changed after last week's debate and the jobs numbers. there's no doublt that it has. they write, quote, the body language from body campaigns suggests that the race did change. a more confident romney camp and an obama campaign with a greater sense of urgency. let's bring in mark murray. i want to t
, the vice president came out swinging today. unlike president obama. he immediately raised the issue of romney's controversial 47%. and he also spoke aggressively about the president saving the american auto industry, gm and chrysler in particular, but there was a testy exchanges on medicare and so many other issues. it looks like -- looks like at least to me, pretty much of a draw as far as this debate is concerned. we'll have full reality checks from our john berman, tom foreman, going through the facts described today. who was telling more of the truth. who was fibbing a bit. going through all of that tonight. you also saw those focus group results at the bottom of the screen. who liked what they saw. these were independent voters in virginia, we're certainly going to hear from them. erin burnett is standing by. we'll hear if any of them changed their minds as a result of what we heard. we also will get an instant poll. a scientific poll of people who actually watched this debate and they will give us their opinion who won, who came out stronger. the vice president, the kochman fr
, the journey will take two days. >> the two vice-presidential candidates went head-to-head in a television debate last night with joe biden taking on paul ryan. >> president obama was viewed as having under-performed last week. >> he said he had been too polite to romney. the vice-president attack targets. >> my friend recently said 30% of the american people are takers. these people are my mom and dad, my neighbors. they pay more effective tax down governor romney does. >> the two clashed over foreign affairs. ryan says the killing of the syrian ambassador prove that his policies are wrong. >> it makes us more we can project weakness. our adversaries are much more -- >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of malarkey. >> his campaign certainly needed a boost. >> more on the surprise announcement about the nobel peace prize. >> don't go away. >> produces high quality seeds, starting small. >> we have the trust. we have proved to the bank that a woman can be equally competitive. >> worldbank.org/gender. >> many european leaders are delighted that the eu has won the nobel peace prize but it
barack obama failed to live up to expectations last week. we certainly saw that tonight as both the vice president and paul ryan went back and forth first over iran seeking a nuclear weapon. >> it makes us more weak. it projects weakness. when we look weak, or adversaries are much more willing to test us. >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of ma larky. >> why is that so? >> bass not a single thing he said is accurate. >> things got more heated when the discussion turned to domestic issues. joe biden attacked mitt romney about his comment of 47% of americans seeing themselves as victims. it's something the president did not do. >> for a guy who says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives, my friend in a spheech in washington said 30 per of the american people are takers. these people are my mom and dad, the people i grew up with, my neighbors. they pay more effective tax than governor are romney pays in his federal income tax. >> when barack obama was elected, his party controlled everything. they had the act to do everything of of their c
views on how. last night when it we begin in ypsilanti, michigan, on our support president obama line. hi, lovada. caller: thanks for taking my call. i watched the debate and i learned a little more about mr. ryan, but i was especially proud of vice president biden because he hit the issues. and, again, i was reminded that although i have not forgotten, that i've been a 47% that mr. romney is not interested in. the debate went very well for mr. biden. host: thanks for calling. here's the front page of "the huffington post" online. and we want to show you the daily caller. i guess we don't have that one quite ready. next, bill in massachusetts on our republican line. caller: good morning. first, i felt martha raddatz did an excellent job. at times it seemed like ryan was debating two people, the moderator and that joe biden. ryan still kept his cool and did a great job. biden is the reincarnation of harold stasstzen. his incessant interrupting, smirks, giggles and laughing at ryan, he was trying to sucker right into losing his temper, but ryan did not fall for that. an embarrassing dis
. but then there's paul ryan, the republican vice presidential nominee saying president obama is not proposing any attack on gun rights. he's not proposing anymore gun laws. that's true. the only gun-related changes in law we have had from president obama have been expansions of gun rights. but the republicans are not supposed to admit that. not when the nra is running this scary ad campaign saying otherwise. and not when the republicans own candidate has a gun rights record that's so schizophrenic it makes his policies on abortion look like a model of consistency. this is the weapons ban that mitt romney signed as governor. the nra doesn't mind that because they are too busy endorsing this gun banning guy over the other guy who has done no such thing but who happens to be a democrat. so it is remarkable that the vice presidential nominee of the republican party stormed out of this interview in michigan this week. but him storming out does not seem to have been because of the question about cutting taxes or this reporter embarrassing himself, which is the way the campaig
critical. president obama called his vice president to wish him luck today, and voiced support for his man last night, in an interview on abc news. >> i think joe just needs to be joe. >> woodruff: and mitt romney played up ryan's chances, at a wednesday event, in ohio. >> i think paul ryan will do great. >> woodruff: the debate will run 90 minutes, and be moderated by abc's martha raddatz. the presidential contenders will meet again in new york on tuesday. joining us for the debate later tonight and here now to preview what to expect are two familiar faces syndicated columnist mark shields and "new york times" columnist david brooks. >> well, if you look at the polls after the first debate, then it's magnified in part because of the way the democrats reacted, a pollster told my friend e.j. dionne that when republicans hate a poll they want to kill the posters, when democrats hate a poll they want to kill themselves. so they've been reacting with this emotion which has been magnifyed with the effect and so the momentum for romney roy ryeian has continued. so this is the night you will eit
night after night. i can't always say the same. >> last night mr. obama also attended a $25,000 per person fund-raising dinner. tomorrow he will hit the campaign trail in ohio. >>> the pressure is on for this thursday's vice presidential depate. vice president joe biden is taking a break from the campaign trail to prepare. biden has suggested he wants to address the differences between himself and his republican counterpart in the aftermath of president obama's lackluster performance and his debate with rommy. ♪ kid rock is joining republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan on the campaign trail today. the singer is attending a rally for ryan tonight in rochester, michigan. this isn't the first time he's attended gop events. kid rock attended a fund-raising event in michigan back in august, and at the republican national convention in tampa. >>> new this morning, venezuelan president hugo chavez has been reelected to a third term in office. chavez wins after a tight race and a record turnout. he told supporters last night in caracas that he would sit down with opposition lea
and what should we be watching for? >> the obama people want to lower the expectations and vice versa on the other side. he will say ridiculous things. but it is usually when he gets on the stump committee starts rambling from he starts asking rhetorical questions. but one has two minutes to give his answer, he actually is very good. he connects with people. >> i think that is exactly what is going on here. getting the one other thing that i want both of you to respond to, and that is jack welch. defending his comments when he questioned the veracity of the jobs numbers. lots of questions about their particular last friday. here is what jack welch said. the data collection system is biased and overstated. i'm not sorry for the heated debates that pursuit. i am not the first to question government numbers and hopefully i will not be the last. what did you make of that whole brouhaha. >> i am not inclined to believe that the numbers were that kind of thing. i think that it is very difficult to do. the bigger issue is whether it was a blip or two, a statistical blip, or whether this is g
night, and his questions, why did obama pick him to be his vice-president? he campaigned against him in the '08 election. joe won every debate. but he only got 1% of the vote. he's a unique personnel. viworked with him over the years. i like him. but there is no question in my mind when i look at joe biden and paul ryan on the stage there last night, i think paul ryan's got what it takes to take over as president. i don't think joe biden does. >> sean: you know, there are certain things he said that were factually inaccurate, one was the issue of benghazi. there was a request. we did know they asked for security. we did know it was a terror attack within 24 hours. we had testimony this week from state department officials and others, very clear on what had happened here. he seemed to throw the state department and our intelligence services down the stairs at the same time and not tell the american people the truth. that's pretty disturbing to me as well. i wanted to get your thoughts on that. >> it's part and parcel with the kind of thing we have seen previously. they like to take cr
like vice- president biden to bring to people's attention how mr. obama saved the car industry and stop to this country from going into a deep depression, by saving the banks. someone from mit said yesterday create $12's plan to million -- 12 million jobs is just wishful thinking and obama's plan is grounded in reality. how can a fast-talking salesman like mr. romney change people's minds and changed their vote? should they not be looking deeper and researched the facts? just talkingy that about energy policy can in any way to create 3 million jobs. you have to look beyond what they are saying and look for the truth, because it's nothing but a snake oil salesman talking. host: do you want to hear them go back and forth tonight interrupting each other or do you want a moderator to step in more and try to control the environment? caller: i would definitely like to see the moderator not let them ramble on. host: so you want time constraints? caller: yes, definitely. i was so disappointed that people are not looking beyond words, because anyone can say anything. host: this was a style secti
for a moment now. last night vice president biden said the obama administration was not told of requests for more security in the run-up to the terror attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. republicans pounced on that claim pointing to testimony the day before from the state department officials that said there had been earlier requests for more security staffing. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live in washington with more on all this. the catherine. >> reporter: good morning. on libya the vice president blamed the intelligence community for bad assessments that informed the administration public and controversyal statements about the attack and suggested the white house was unaware for more requests on the ground in libya. >> we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security again. by the way, at the time we were told exactly, we said exactly what the intelligence community towed us. that they knew. that was the assessment. and as the intelligence community changed their view, we made it clear they changed their view. that's
glasses of water. joining me is the vice president's son, beau biden and the man who stood in for ryan during debate practice. also, romney on the attack today, slamming obama and biden on their response to the u.s. ambassador's murder in libya. >> the vice president directly contradicted the sworn testimony of state department officials. he's doubling down on denial. >> plus, my all-star panel weigh in on the v.p. debate and why the stakes are so high in tuesday's presidential debate, round two. this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. it was the best reality show by far this season. about as real as you can get. the vice presidential debate has already been called the most heated and compelling in history. 25 days to go before the election, it could be a huge factor in who wins the white house. with his grins and his jabs, biden went on the offensive but ryan didn't back down. here's one memorable exchange between the two. >> you can cut tax rates by 20% and still preserve these important preferences for middle class taxpayers -- >> not mathematically possible. >> it is math

there's more. vice president joe biden and paul ryan did just wrap up about 30 minutes ago. the obama campaign heading into tonight said they needed a strong performance from vice president biden tonight. by pretty much all accounts they got one. the fireworks tonight in this debate started almost from the very first moment. >> this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself, but unfortunately it's indicative of a broader problem. that is what we are watching on our tv screens is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy, which is making them more chaotic and us less safe. >> with all do respect, that's a bunch of malarky. the congressman here cut them b -- embassy security by $300 million below what we asked for. so much for the security piece. number two, governor romney, before he even knew the facts, before he knew our ambassador was killed, he was out making a political statement, which was panned by the media around the world. this talk about this weakness, i don't understand that my friend's talking about here. this is a president who's gone out and done everything he

that was bridged tonight by vice president biden that has not been focused on by the obama/biden campaign thus far was the privatization of social security. this is something that george w. bush pursued in his second term. paul ryan had been a proponent of that at that time. he'd since dropped it from his plans by the time mitt romney was getting around to endorsing paul ryan's plans. joe biden went there tonight. should we see that as the intention of the democratic side to go there, holding the republicans accountable for paul ryan's old idea and george w. bush's old idea to privatize social security? >> i think it was one of joe biden's best moments. there's no question where paul ryan stood. even before the stock market crash, he was arguing we should go to privatizing social security. when people lost 30, 40% or more of their savings, he was still clinging to this crazy notion. joe biden put him on the spot tonight. he had to admit it. the same thing held true for medicare. joe biden would not allow paul ryan to dance away from his crazy views. >> on the issue of afghanistan, it was confusing
